If you love history, you will like the Bennett Place. Take a tour, watch a movie, explore the museum and shop in the gift shop. It has walking trails and hosts several events throughout the year. There is something for everyone.

This is a very important part of history! Very seldom do you come to a place that has such significant impact on American history. To be in the spot that they signed such a life changing document was truly chilling. The museum was very well done and the video was very good. Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. Don't pass up the opportunity to visit a very important historical site if in the area.

Our guide, was very knowledgeable. When I told him we had ancestors that were in Sherman's army at the time of the surrender, he looked up the units in a book and told us that they would have been camped at Raleigh at the time and that only the Calvary were with him that day. He knew a lot of "side stories" from being local and knowing other families and their family lore and remembrances of the day. It was very emotional for me standing where such a time in history had occurred. I lost several great uncles in the battle for emancipation. One of the grandfathers who would have been waiting in Raleigh had lost a brother and four brother-in-laws throughout the five years of war. He came home with physical ailments and injuries that pursued him the rest of his life. It was a great stop on our vacation. I look forward to seeing more places in NC. I want to clarify that it cost $1,00 to view the house and barns. Money well spent!

This historic site was amazing. Being Virginia born, I was taught the war ended in Appomattox. Learn something new every day.

My wife and I took our 1 year old granddaughter here. They had some people reenacting the era. It was magnificent!! A low-key, relaxing, unique time. There are no big crowds and so many small details to enjoy. Kudos to the volunteers who really make this special. If you're single, a couple, a family, or just some friends hanging out, this is a pretty cool experience. Don't go if you're looking for loud and adrenaline pumping. The lack of those are why this place is chill. There is a nice museum here, too. Unfortunately, I only took one or two pictures inside to share. Entrance is free, but there's a donation box. Please give as you can. Ladies were there selling baked goods, too. They were delicious. Go check this place out! 😁
